from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear what the motive is in all of this. they do say though that her credit cards have been used, but there was no apparent ransom that was discussed. a ransom never came up at all. we have more information now from the police chief here at aberdeen. >> he was driving her vehicle, which was a silver lincoln continental.

's top fashion designers the rest of the week on cnn. look for alina's special back stage pass from paris this saturday, july 14th, at 2:30 eastern. >>> this hour in the cnn newsroom we are focusing on the congressional vote on the affordable health care act also known as obama health care. we'll take you to a city where the mayor is cutting workers pay to minimum wage. if you're missing some channels on your directv don't worry. cnn is working of course but we want to talk about that as well. we'll get right down to it. we're hearing that it could get a statement today on the health of congressman jesse jackson jr. of illinois. one of his top aids says that jackson's condition is not life threatening. last week jackson's office issued a statement saying he is struggling with physical and emotional problems that will require extensive medical treatment. the 47-year-old took a medical leave of absence last month which his office attributed to exhaustion. he has been under growing pressure to explain his disappearance from capitol hill. we'll have more details and a live report from chicago
story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemployment rate. so it's actually higher than 8.2%. also very key here is minorities. we have to look at what has happened to african-americans. their unemployment rate has gone up for the month of may. it's now nearly 14.5%. it is pretty much double unemployment for whites, hispanics, 11% unemploy
to get right to cnn's jim acosta. he's covering mitt romney today delivering some major messages of his own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston

has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then
-down interviews including ones with cnn's wolf blitzer and piers morgan. still the obama campaign slammed romney as not ready for primetime while the trip got a more sympathetic response from the white house. >> these are high stakes enterprises that pulling them off is a lot harder than it looks. that they can be very tense especially if they're not going well. >> reporter: signaling that it's turning the page the romney campaign unveiled a new smartphone app adesigned to announce the pick in a few weeks. >> i know what it's like to hire people and wonder whether you're going to make ends meet down the road. >> reporter: romney never openly criticized the president during this overseas trip, but all of that will change later this week when romney heads to the battleground state of colorado, joe. >> jim, i think the question at this stage is whether we've seen an apology from the aide who had that sort of misuse of words there, if you will. >> reporter: joe, there was no official apology from the campaign, but that aide did call a couple of reporters, he did apologize over the phone and the apol

colleague, cnn producer is live in tripoli. it's a historic day. what's the mood among the people right now and is voter turnout good? >> gary, it's been an incredible day. people here, there's a sense of national pride. people are driving around tripoli in their cars waving the free libya flag and showing their inked fingers, a sign of pride in a post-revolution arab countries these days. the turnout so far has been pretty good according to the electoral commission. we expect to hear more when the polls close. they're expected to close in about two hours. possible extensions to that. so far we are told more voters than expected have turned out. >> who's on the ballot today? >> well, that is one of the key issues here, gary, is people are overwhelmed by the choice. thousands of candidates are running in this election for the national congress. most of them are virtually unknown to the libyan population who, for more than 40 years, knew one man only, moammar gadhafi, and today, his picture was replaced by the pictures of thousands of people. some are individual candidates running, others are
to cnn about foreign policy and he can talk to harratz about foreign policy? it doesn't make sense to me. he could put out being overly critical. he would say, look, these are the principles i would take if i were president or something like that. it's kind of a strange thing. without knowing what's in the interview that he gave to the israeli -- why can't he talk to them and not us? >> well, i don't know what's in it. although i would be surprised you're giving an interview to an israeli newspaper you're talking about things like iran or the palestinian issue. what i still don't understand about it. president obama, remember when he went overseas in 2008? he gave that big speech about -- and it was, you know, the thing that he's best at, right, giving an inspirational speech, and here's what he said about foreign policy on the trip he took while running for president. >> this is the moment we must help answer the call for a new dawn in the middle east. my country must stand with yours and with europe in sending a direct message to iran, that it must abandon its nuclear ambitions. we mus

that is now the subject of a legal battle. cnn's jim spellman is following the developments in arapahoe county, california. jim, good morning. so, tell me exactly, do they know when this notebook might have been sent to the professor, and will we ever get a look at it? >> reporter: well, here's what we know at this point. so, last monday, this package arrived at the university containing something written by james holmes sent to dr. lynn fenton, psychiatrist working at the university. so, at this point, it's in possession of the police and/or the da's office at this point. the defense says we want that, that's privileged doctor-patient material written from this patient to the doctor. we want to get that. that's the subject of this court hearing, of this court motion that was filed yesterday. what we don't know is how long holmes was seeing her or why he was seeing her. we don't know what was in this notebook. in this court filing, the da's office says they haven't even examined it ahead of the hearing monday. so, we've gotten some insight that we know he was seeking psychiatric help and it co

lochte, but romney won't be poolside. he has just left london for israel. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta reports romney's campaign is shrugging off a string of diplomatic misfires in the british capital. >> reporter: the headlines here in london were not what mitt romney anticipated when he embarked on this overseas trip, but his campaign is confident he can clear the hurdles ahead. mitt romney hit the reset button on his overseas charm offensive during his lone public meeting of the day in london. he was asked by the leader of ireland about how he had to walk to the irish embassy due to the city's intense pre-olympics traffic. >> i see you had to walk from the hotel. >> reporter: romney's response? >> i enjoyed it. >> reporter: romney is walking on eggshells and eager to please after being blasted by british leaders for appearing to question london's readiness to host the olympic games. dubbed "the party popper" in "the daily mail," "nowhere man" in "the times of london" and more, he side-stepped the issue with piers morgan. >> you've been slightly criticism for
of the health care debate keep it on cnn. monitor cnn.com throughout the day. >> i'll get ali off the ledge and switch gears. >>> banned for life. this does not bode well for lance armstrong. three of lance armstrong's closest cycling advisers, two doctors and a trainer have received what's really considered to be the death penalty in sports from the u.s. anti-doping agency. they were all associated with lance armstrong's former u.s. postal service cycling team. the agency says they were trafficking in performance enhancing drugs during all or part of lance armstrong's seven tour de france victories. armstrong himself is not part of that. but he is fighting charges as well that he used banned drugs. he filed a lawsuit. it was dismissed. he went ahead and refiled that lawsuit in a flash, really. all within a matter of days. a lawsuit against the anti-doping agency to try to help keep their case from going forward. stay tuned to this space. it may be dismissed again. it may go forward. >> there's been anti-doping agency news almost every day. one might start to wonder whether they are on a pe
today. >> cnn political analyst rolen martin in houston where romney spoke. good to see you. >> like wise. >> tell us what you think romney thinks he'll accomplish here when you take a look at the polls and they say what about 5% african-americans support romney compared to 87% for president obama. >> well, first of all i think if you go back to a couple things, obvious obviously senator obama got the percent of the vote in 2008. in 1998 speaker gingrich was the leader of the house he was perceived as far too antagonist tick when it came to minorities and that was not appealing to suburban white women. then governor george w. bush ran in 2000 with compassionate conservativism and that was a lot more appealing to those constituents. so really what mitt romney is doing is not necessarily to get significant numbers of black votes but to say to independent voters out there, i am reaching out. i'm not simply trying to be only looking at one ethnic group when it comes to the gop. i think that's really what the intention is to say i'm open, have open arms to reach out to many other people.
was an absolute shock for survivors of the attack and victims' relatives who were in the courtroom. cnn's kyung lah spoke with them today. >> reporter: now the hair is getting a lot of tangs. that's the thing that first struck them. what one survivor told us is something he will not forget now is the expression on this man's face. >> you're going to get a close-up shot of the 24-year-old shooting spree suspect. >> the first look for corbin. he sat in the second row as the shooting began, coming within feet of the mass killer. >> you finally take off the mask. and you see who this person really is, it's like a shock. >> can you reconcile this image with the man inside the theater? >> i did not expect that at all. it was shocking. first thing, he was covered in black. the visual coming into my mind was somebody who was -- i would say somebody very buff. somebody who works out. somebody who probably has a history of knowing weapons inside and out. >> james holmes hair grabbed attention for most people. but dade couldn't get past the expression on his face. >> he had no right to come into court loo
in syria have been moved. but the official that spoke to cnn said they're not sure if it was moved in order to protect the chemical weapons because of the fighting that's going on in syria to make sure nothing happens to it, or more ominously, was it moved in order to try to use it against some of the population of syria? there's been a great concern from the u.s. and other international powers about syria's weapons stockpile. the u.s. has said for a while now they've had their eye on syrian weapons stockpiles there trying to make sure nothing happens. and because of these new reports, a lot more concern about what exactly is going to be done with these weapons that they believe have been moved, randi. >> and still no indication that this conflict is going to end any time soon. mohamed jamjoom, thank you. >>> to afghanistan where 17 people were killed in a suicide bomb attack at a wedding. 45 others have been injured. it seems the target of the attack was a prominent member of the afghan parliament. he was killed as he welcomed guests to his daughter's wedding. no one has claimed responsibi

and this hour in the "cnn newsroom," we will tell you how the worst drought that america has seen in 50 years is affect iing the cro and the economy and our pocketbooks. and the white house takes mitt romney and two possible vp candidates to ohio. >>> and the fda bans a chemical from baby bottles and why are adults still living with it? >>> we go to wilted crops in fields, and soil drying up, and half of the country's farms are reaching drought which is the most since 1956. and today, president obama met with agriculture secretary tom vilsack, and 39 more counties declared disaster areas, and we are taking an in-depth look at the crops, and how the drought is affecting corn and the farmers and what it means for the food budget and you are likely to see some prices going up as well. the drought is taking a devastating toll on the crops and especially corn. the agriculture program is saying that 50% of the corn acro across the country is in poor or very poor condition and that is with only 11% last year. and we will go to talk with rob marciano there in burnettsville, indiana. and tell us what

, take a look at it. >> reporter: but finally he gave cnn the news. >> the supreme court is the final word, right? the highest court in the land? they said it was a tax, didn't they? so it's a tax. that's what they say it is. >> reporter: the main reason the already cautious romney was especially careful here is because the gop message on the mandate is already muddled. earlier this week a top romney advisor said the candidate did not think the insurance mandate is a tax but rather a penalty. what democrats call it. >> the governor believes what we put in place in massachusetts was a penalty. and he disagrees with the court's ruling that the mandate was a tax. >> reporter: that enfuruated republicans in washington for imposing what they call the biggest tax in american history. democrats here shadowing romney's event didn't miss a beat. >> i think people see the president as being a strong leader standing up for his principles and moving forward. we'll let mitt romney argue with himself. >> reporter: romney's news came during a brief bit of independence day action in an otherwise quie
. >> we have pictures that the cnn producer took as he flew over the mississippi river, and we can see where the river appears to be shrinking here, and what does that tell you just about how tough this is? >> well, when it is to the point of actual large rivers like the mississippi declining in the stream flow, that tells us that we have reached sort of another stage of drought and not just based on the rainfall, but a number of other factors like the temperature, and it's been somewhat prolonged. so it is definitely another stage of drought, ands i sa as , it is severe. we have to keep monitoring. >> do we know how long it will take to recover from the kinds of drought conditions we are faced now? >> well, we won't see anything until the fall or the winter. looks like we are setting up in el nino pattern and the '50s drought was that we were brought out of it by going into the el nino pattern which brought lots of moisture into texas, so it's very a very good sign that we are going into the el nino right now, and very likely in the winter we may see the conditions improving. >> thank
